The Anonymous Widower

How To Be Rude To Visitors

I am watching the World Cup semi-final with a visitor from The Netherlands.

Their experience is ruined by the constant adverts and crass commentary on ITV. After all none of the adverts is relevant to someone with intelligence or who lives outside of the UK.

ITV also always refer to The Netherlands as Holland, which is incorrect, as Holland is just a province of the Netherlands.  It’s like using England, when you mean Great Britain or the United Kingdom.

I tried to find a Dutch channel on SKY, so that we could both enjoy it, but there isn’t one.

So we just switched over to Radio 5 at half-time to avoid the drivel!
